    Leather Seats

    Hey all. I just got around to taking pics of my Leather Seats that I recently installed, thanks to a friend of mine.

    Just thought I'd share:

    Wow! they look amazing.

    How much did it run you to do that, I'm thinking of changing to leather myself.

    Well, I bought the seats second hand for $400. The guy who I bought the seats from paid I think $560 or so for the leather, and then did the upholstering himself. So if you were to get it done somewhere I'd think it'd be at least $800??

    Yeah, I LOVE the seats (they are the same WRX seats, just 100 times more comfortable)

    $1500 I see why my friend decided to do it himself. He did an amazing job on them though. No one would ever know a shop didn't do it.

    There was a group buy for the skins when my friend bought it, so if you could find it like that, and then bring it somewhere else, I'm sure you could get it for less than $1500 (Dealers always get you)

    Really? WOW, good to see the little guy coming out on top every once in a while.

    On a second note, for those who are interested, there's a group buy going on now for leather:

    Hey Zapix

    I am guessing that you bought your car new. Did the dealer allready have the car in stock w/ the seats leather allready, or did you order the car and ask them to do it. Did they offer or did you ask?

    Thanx

    Yeah, I got the car new. My sedan was totally stock from start! No nothing on it!
    I got that for $22,251.
    They did the leather custom for me, $1500. They had it already in some cars for $1100. It's something they custom sell! Gotta love Schaller Subaru for that!
    They did mine for $1500. So I guess $1100 plus install... Cheap bastards!
    Everything on my car was pretty much dealer done though. Gold P1s and tires, $1750, 22B wing for $750. It was a good deal on the whole thing. Plus I had them put in a HKS boost gauge and security system. I drove away from there 100% satisfied and happy with my purchase!
    On the topic of the leather, I find it's very comfortable, and you stay in the seat very well. No sliding around like some leather seats. I was at a meet recently... I didn't see a single WRX with leather, although older RS2.5s... Yes. But not with this style.

    IMHO, this leather has a very sporty feel that you only find in Porsche cars, or the Audi TT. It lightens the interior a bit as well. I should note that the leather also adds a bit of an echo effect in the car! Somewhat interesting, but I don't even notice it anymore!
